for their Bishop and for the ca- 
techists and for their priests as 

The idea of doing all of this 
before congress only, is not a 
practical move for all the socie- 
ties but the idea is to get down 
and see that the above are all 
continually provided for regard- 
less of congress.

ALLEN, S. D. Nov. 5th 1909. 
To the readers of the Eyanpaha. 
Since,, we had no congress 
this summer, I wish to suggest 
that every local society should 
make their annual report to their 
respective missionaries, showing 
how much money they have giv- 
en to our dear Bishop, and how 
much money is given to hi a ', to 
distribute among his missionar- 
ies for the benefit of the cate- 
chists on the various agencies, 

i A full report should be made 
to show how each local meeting 
is standing; how much money 
has been deposited with each 
Treasurer of each agency, as was 
adopted at the last Congress held 
at Rosebud Agency, S. Dak. 
. Farther, I. wish to say, that we 
should not only wait for congress 
to have the result of our societies 
knowmbutl think this can be 
made known through our mis- 
sionaries as well, for the reason 
that- the Bishop and catechists 
has to be provided for whether 
we have a congress or not. 

Therefore, each society should 
get up and see what^they can do

and a moisture gathered in his 
own as a moment later, he jogged 
off, pondering deeply upon the 
quaint little serman that had 
been delivered so innocently and 



A GENTLEMAN was riding 
slowly along the dusty road, look- 
ing in all directions for a stream, 
or even a house, where he might 
refresh his tired, thirsty horse 
with a draught of water. While 
he was thinking and wondering 
he turned, an abrupt bend in the 
the road, and saw before him a 
comfortable farm-house; and at 
the same time a boy ten or twelve 
years old came out into the road 
with a small pail and stood di- 
rectly before him. 

"What do you wish my boy?" 
said the gentleman, stopping his 

"Would your horse like a drink, 
sir?" said the boy respectfully. 

"Indeed he would; and I was 
wondering where I could obtain 

The gentleman thought little 
of it, supposing, of course- the 
boy earned a few pennies in this 
manner; and therefore, he offered 
him a bit of silver, and was aston- 
ished to see him refuse it. 

"I would like you to take it" 
he said, looking earnestly at the 
child and observing for the first 
time that he limped slightly. 

"Indeed, sir, I don't want it. 
It is little enough I can do for 
myself or anyone. I am lame 
and my back is bad sir; and 
mother says, no matter how small : 
a favor may seem, if it is all we 
are capable of, God loves it as 
much as he does a large favor. 
And thisjs the most I can do for 
others. You see, sir, the distance 
from Painsville is eight miles to 
this spot, and I happen to know 
there is no stream crossing the ' 


road that distance; and so, sir, ( 
almost everyone passing here: 
from that place is sure to have a ' 
thirsty horse." 

The gentleman looked down 
into the gray eyes that were 
kindling and glowing with the 
thought of doing good to others; 

Many years ago, Mr. Hall, an 
English gentleman visited Ire- 
land for the purpose of taking 
sketches of its most beautiful 
scenery, to be used in all illus- 
trated work of Ireland, which 
has since been published. 

On one occasion, when about to 
spend a day in the neighborhood 
of Lake Killarney,he met a bright 
young Irish lad, who offered his 
service as guide through the 

A bargain was made with him, 
and the party went off. The lad 
proved himself well acquainted 
with all the places of interest in 
the neigborhood and had plenty 
of stories to tell about them. He 
did his work well, and to the en- 
tire satisfaction of the visitors. 
On their return to the starting 
point, Mr. Hall took a flask of 
whiskey from his pocket, and 
drank some. Then he handed it 
to the boy, and asked him to help 
himself. To his surprise the of- 
fer was firmly, but politely de- 

Mr. Hall thought this very 
strange. To find an Irish boy 
who. would not touch or taste 
whikey was stranger to him than 
anything he had seen that day. 
He could not understand it; and 
he resolved to try the strength 
of the boy's temperance princi- 
ples. He offered first a shilling, 
then a half crown, and then five 
shillings if he would taste that 
whiskey. But the bpy was firm. 
A real manly heart was beating 
under his ragget jacket. Mr, 
Hall determined to try him fur- 
ther, so he offered the boy a 
golden half sovereign if he would 
take a drink of whiskey. That 
was a coin seldom seen by lads 
of this class in those parts. 
Straightening himslf up, with a 
look of indignation on his face, 
the boy pulled out a temperance 
medal from his inner poket of his 
jacket, and holding it bravely up 
said: "This was my father's 
medal. For years he was intem- 
perate. All his wages were spent 
in drink. It almost broke my 

mother's heart; and what a hard 
time she had to keep the children 
from starving. At last my father 
took a stand. He signed the 
pledge and wore this medal as 
long as he lived. On his deathbed 
he gave it to me. I promised him 
that I would never drink intoxi- 
cating liquor, and now, sir, for 
all the money your honor may 
be worth a hundred times over, 
I would not brake that promise." 
That boy's dicision about drink 
was noble. Yes, — and it did good, 
too. As Mr. Hall stood there, 
astonished, he screwed the top 
unto his flask, and flung it into 
the water of the lake near which 
they stood. 

Then he turned to the lad and 
shook him warmly by the hand, 
saying as he did so: — 

"My boy, that's the best tem- 
perance lecture I ever heard. I 
thank you for it. And now, by 
the help of God, I will never 
drink another drink of intoxicat- 
ing liquor while I live." 

This incedent shows that it 
does not follow that a person 
must become a drunkard because 
his father or mother happened 
to be addicted to drink. If we 
ask God's assistance we can re- 
sist the worsttemptations. From 
this it can be easily seen that the 
idea of heredity is all stuff and 
nonsense. We know many per- 
sons whose parents were de- 
praved, and yet who were them- 
selves model citizens and good 
Catholics, because they relied 
upon the aid which the Almighty 
God gave them, and because they 
did not make light of prayer. 


HERE is a very interesting 
anecdote of the great Bonaparte 
and a boy whom he selected as a 
page because of his handsome 
appearance and also because of 
his sterling and honest charac- 
teristics. We remark, in ad- 
vance, that, without making de- 
votion a specialty, Napoleon I, 
had nevertheless very clear ideas 
on religious matters, which ideas 
were implanted in his mind dur- 
ing his early years. One day, 
at the period of his highest pros- 
perity, this monorch went to the 
theatre attended by a young 
page for whom he had a lively 
affection, and whom he was de- 
sirous of attaching to his person. 

The emperor, however, paid but 
little atention to the drama and 
spent his time in examining the 
assistants. The conduct of his 
young attendant seemed greatly 
to astonish him; this young man 
appeared to be rapt in thought 
and to take very little interest 
in 'the representations. Besides, 
obstinately kept his hand hidden 
under a fur overcoat spread 
across his knees. 

Suddenly Napoloon. leaving his 
seat bent over the young duke's 
shoulder and, thrusting his hand 
into his overcoat, brought forth 
a pair of beads. At that period, 
and with the, majority of those 
present, the beads were not in 
great honorv and the blushing 
page stood waiting a seyere re- 
premand. ' -'Ah, Augustus, I 
caught you!" said Napoleon. 
"Well,'' continued he, "I am 
proud of you; you are above the 
nonsense of the theatre; you are 
a noble youth, and you will one 
day be a man. Continue," said 
he, returning the beads, "I will 
trouble you no more." Those who 
witnessed the scene and heard 
the words of the monarch dared 
not laugh at the devotion of the 
page. He who thus said his 
beads at the theatre did indeed 
become a man: he died Cardinal 
Archbishop of Besacon, leaving 
numberless proofs of eminent 

The Patient mule. 

The kidn-hearted vvowan was very so- 
licitous about a certain mule belonging 
to Erastus Pinkley. The mule had a sad 
and heavy appearance; and never -look- 
ed more dejected than when its pro 
prietor brought it up with a flourish at 
the front gate, saya a writer in the 
Washington Star. 

"Do yuu ever abuse that mule of 
yours?" she inquired one day.

stus. I should say not! Dat mule has

The Safe Course, 

This clerk may have been im- 
pudent, but no doubt the custom- 
er smiled in spite of herself . The 
story is told by a writer in the 
Christian Guardian. 

"How can you tell bad eggs" 
asked the young housewife- 

"I never told any, "replied the 
grocery clerk, "but if I did have 
anything to tell a bad egg, I'd 
brake it gently.' 1
